Barcelona want Neymar and three other signings to help Lionel Messi after Real Madrid loss
Barcelona are ready to make four signings in the summer to help Lionel Messi. The Spanish giants were stunned by Real Madrid in El Clasico on Sunday evening, with Zinedine Zidane’s men winning 2-0. Real boast a one-point lead at the top of La Liga after their win at the Bernabeu.
And according to Spanish newspaper Sport, Barcelona’s defeat against Real Madrid left Nou Camp chiefs fuming.
Barcelona chiefs felt Messi was isolated and the Argentina talisman needs more support.
It’s claimed Barcelona are willing to splash the cash in the summer to bring in additions to help Messi in his final years at the Nou Camp.
Sport say the Spanish giants want a right-back, centre-back, winger and a striker.
It’s claimed Barcelona see Neymar as their ideal signing to play on the wing next season.
The Brazilian left the Nou Camp for PSG in 2017 in a world-record transfer.
